Everton boss Sam Allardyce concedes he is already under pressure after their current form slump.
Everton are reeling after their thrashing by Arsenal.
Allardyce knows he is the prime target for Everton fans. And he knows the consequences too.
He said, “How do I win the fans around? By winning Saturday. The most important things for me are that the players on the pitch win the fans over for me.
“It’s not me who wins the fans over. The players do it for me because they go out and perform and get results. That is what I need them to do and that gives us all breathing space that we need at the moment.”
Allardyce believes contracts are worthless.
“I have talked about the contract length meaning nothing because the results mean everything for how long you stay,” he added.
“How long did Ronald have? Four or five years and it ended up being 18 months. Frank De Boer went to Palace after me, I had a one-and-a-half-year contract but he had three-year contract and lasted four months.
“So my contract is as long as we go forward together and achieve results together, moving into the new stadium together hopefully with a great team. I hope I see that time, but for the moment it’s only the next game and the end of the season I’m focusing on.”
